Murata announced the MEU1 series of ultra-miniature single isolated output 1 Watt DC-DC converters from Murata Power Solutions. Measuring just 8.30 x 6.10 x 7.55 mm, this new series achieves a 26% footprint reduction when compared to previously released products. Available as through-hole mounting with staggered style pin outs, the MEU1 achieves a 25% increase in power density and can deliver its output power over the whole temperature range of - 40 degrees C to +85 degrees C. The reduction in converter volume and footprint allows engineers to reduce the overall dimensions of their application, which is critical for space-constrained designs.
Conversion efficiency has also been improved by typically 6% across the full load range compared to previous models. Efficiency improvements contribute to lowering the overall system power consumption in addition to increasing system reliability.
